the almighty but more of a delivery from aig and exxon mobil and comcast. the magic of right clicking the pdf revealed that the new author is a fellow named brian wild, a staffer for john boehner, who is also a former lobbyist for all of the aforementioned companies and more. mr. wild worked for the nichols group, a lobbying group paid more than $740,000 to lobby for aig and for exxon mobil and $625,000 for pfizer. the reason that is particularly awkward for this political document is because republicans went out of their way with this thing to make this particular pledge seem like it was just the voice of the people. republican congressman mike pence said it would prove that the democrat majority wasn't listening but house republicans will. house republicans will listen, not like those rats, house republicans will listen and then we'll have an exxon lobbyist write it down. as part of that we're listening to you spin, the whole basis of the republican campaign pledge was their big america speaking out website, giving the impression to anybody visiting that website, whatever suggestion got the

problem of going on -- going beyond just deploying and actually produce a recovery. in the exxon valdez spill, whenever people might say about exxon from a culpability standpoint, the reality is they committed a substantial amount of resources to the effort. what did we get? 10% of the oil? i submit we will get actually recovered less than 20% recovered in the gulf of mexico. the point is not that shell is doing a bad job of designing the plan, the point is what can we actually expect in a realistic results? that's the place where i submit we are not in position to handle the worst case. >> did you want to comment, mayor? did you want to comment on the last exchange? >> the comment that i had made -- it has been a least three years ago, when i said it was too much, too soon, too fast. that's a part of the dilemma we are facing appear because of the compressed windows we have been forced to deal with. we do not have a level of comfort -- because this is a frontier, this has never been done up here on this scale before, though i acknowledge prior offshore work has been done. i have eight
issue as we move forward with respect to developing oil and gas in the ocean. what happened in the post-exxon valdez days is that there was a national sense shared by republicans and democrats alike, multiple administrations, multiple secretaries of the interior especially when dealing with oil spill response and a fine quality of oil -- finite quality of will. what we've found out from the 75 days of the oil into the ocean is it was very difficult to quantify in the first place which brings in a whole set of lessons to be learned relative to instrumentation and other things we are learning on but also the difficulty of being able to respond effectively to it. that is one thing the director is working on for me and i would ask the deputy secretary comment on this as well. >> just a quick comment, commissioner. i do not think there's any question that the spill response plans need a fresh look. we intend to do that. on your threshold question, how do you know in the aggregate that you have adequate capacity of the fields that are large as well as the small ones? in fact, under the current syst

situation? we have two callers now that mentioned this the exxon valdez happened during the first bush administration. we had clinton and then bush ii and then president obama. after the exxon valdez there was a law written that these guys were supposed to have a response team with boom. they even had contractors that they all pay for these response teams in the gulf. now, the government was supposed to follow-up, also, make sure that this law was being followed so, you know, it's not only b.p. it's all of us, the government, everybody failed in the situation. i heard reports that there was only like 400 miles of boom in the gulf to respond to these thousands of wells. and whether that report was right or not, they had to make thousands of miles to go and help in the gulf. we are not holding the people accountable that are supposed to be accountable. in my opinion on b.p., they really need to pull all their ads and be quiet, start leading by example and do great safety programs instead of apologizing for this. their apology is never going to be accepted. they need to start doing someth

, the principal author of it is a lobbyist whose firm represented exxon, pfizer, aig, one of the great grassroots organizations of america. >> does paul from a point? >> this is exactly why the republicans didn't need to do this. put this in perspective. i agree with congressman hayworth the contract from america has much more substance to it than this dreck. look at the contract with america, it came out after 40 years of democratic rule in one page, 867 words. the republicans explained how they were going to be different from 40 years of democrats. we've now had a four-year gap between republican control of congress and democrats and now they've got to produce a document longer than the american constitution. >> mr. hayworth, i want to play a clip of an interview dana bash did earlier today with house republican leader john boehner. >> reporter: you talk about the rebellion out there. part of what those rebellious voters want to know is they want you to be specific because as you probably know, as you know, that maybe aren't enamored of the democrats but they don't trust you -- >> that's why we
wasn't listening but that republicans will. house republicans will listen and then we'll have an exxon lobbyist write it down. as part of that we're listening to you spin, the whole basis of the republican campaign pledge was their big america speaking out website, giving the impression to anybody visiting that website, whatever suggestion got the most thumbs up votes on the website would become part of this republican agenda. republicans were merely a vessel for the desires of the american people. but it turns out the desires of the american people as expressed at americaspeakingout.com were for legalizing pot and ending the outsourcing of american jobs to other countries. those are some of the things that turned out to be the most popular ideas, the most thumbs up on the america speaking out website. these stated desires of the american people, that americans aren't going to ignore like that democrat majority does, those desires were not, in fact, beamed directly from americaspeakingout.com through the larnyx of the republicans. legalizing pot, shockingly nowhere to be found in the r
of northern parkway and falls road. working at the exxon station, across the corner, you say you saw the flames? >> yes. it was almost 2:25 a.m. i was inside working. when i saw the flame, i thought it was the moonlight, and then after a while i was walking in and after a minute, when i looked out it was getting bigger and bigger. i thought it was fire then and trying to call 911. then i saw the fire trucks coming and said somebody called already. i was walking but the whole time it was getting bigger and bigger. one of the men from the firefighter told me it was like over 100 feets of fire. >> it was very big. >> yes. >> thank you so much for describing what you saw. we want to let you know what happened. apparently this started on the second floor. there were six people inside. four women, a grandfather and a 10-year-old boy. one of the women, a grandmother had to jump from an attic window. the other women had to jump and said they felt the flames licking them, shooting out of the window touching their hair and arms. they had to jump to safety. right now fire investigators are tryi
a letter exxon rating lewis. i knew she was someone who could be easily manipulated. killing julian and charles lewis was entirely my idea. i needed money and teresa was an easy target. i read your report there and i couldn't believe what i was reading, if this was all true and accurate. what is the latest and the possibility of the judge stepping in this case? >> it wouldn't be a judge stepping in. it would be governor mcdonald of virginia. he said that no later than a week before she's scheduled to be killed, which is september 23rd, he will decide whether he's going to be granting her clemency but we're not sure what his decision is going to be on that. >> back to teresa and her mental capacity, she was tested and tell me a little bit more about what those tests revealed about her mental disability. >> she took two iq tests. one she scored a 73 and the other a 70. 70 and below is considered legally mentally disabled. she was ruled borderline functioning, the stage above intellectually disabled and therefore she can still be legally sentenced to death although it's very controvers

disaster, the white house kept saying this is bp's problem. it turned out that in 1991, after the exxon valdez, and i was the republican whip at the time, we passed a law that said all these problems are the coast guard problem. the president as commander in chief has a direct responsible. after about two weeks of saying this is bp's problem, the white house began saying we are deeply engaged. people could see the difference in those two responses. >> greta: the reason i ask is because the economy is so much a product of people's enthusiasm to want to go out and expand, to buy to feel inspired, to spend, build, be creative. there's something hanging over the nation where you are scared, frightened, worried you hang on tight and that hurts the economy. so the psychological impact of the leadership does matter. >> calista and i were at dinner this week, two entrepreneurs walked up to us and said, we each have enough money in the bank that we could expand your businesses. one is a very successful restaurant operator who has three locations co-expand to. the other is a person who has a fact

after exxon valdez, i continued to be amazed and disappointed at the failure of the technology response to revolve war that has. particularly in view of the tremendous advances made in the technology of drilling itself. the skimmers, we are informed by noaa, i saw a flotilla of them when i flew out to the raid, succeeded in gathering up 33%. dispersants got that up to about 13. given the amount -- the enormous effort, it seems to me a very disappointing results, frankly. the consequence of a lot of things, one of which is the failure of technology. the skimmers, the booms, the dispersants to be involved and developed. we will raise some of those questions today. we will consider the use of dispersants, and we will discuss how and why they were employed in the gulf. in such quantities [unintelligible] both of which represent novel uses of dispersants and suggest there was enormous confidence placed in dispersants, more confidence than i allowed in prince william sound where the dispersants were more troublesome and more toxic than they are today. we will learn more about that. looking at
, exxon, and it shows. i think it is another hit for most of us to the benefit of a few of us and you have to think about that. watching that press conference today. because i think that you were generous talking about their flannel shirts. all that i saw were those iron shirts? are they paying all of those people living wage? >> ernie, where is the new idea. and where is the new idea. >> the thing about the idea is, you need to look at during ideas about. freedom is enduring ideas. so are responsibilities of freedom is an enduring idea. >> well -- >> realizing the government has become the problem not the solution as most people do. >> ernie -- >> we've got the heritage foundation has proposals, you can say they're not new ideas. >> but let me ask you something, let me ask you something, ernie. couldn't be a bigger -- between the stories of getting health care for the very first time with pre-existing conditions and the quote from sharron angle, saying, we don't want to pay for that person over there it's maternity kid or autistic kid, the contrast is huge. i talk to these tea party folks
